Abstract
Two cases of splenic hamartoma are described. Both cases occurred in
women in their fifties and presented as vague abdominal symptoms. Case 1 was a large
solitary hamartoma, 6.5 cm in size and hypervascular mass angiographically. No white pulp
with germinal centers or central arterioles were seen in the mass. Instead, a mass of red pulp
with well-formed sinuses, often exhibiting active endothelial cells, were the predominent
feature, scattered with lymphoid nodules. Extramedullary hemopoieses was meager. Case 2
was an example of multiple (3) hamartomas that showed extraordinary extramedullary hemopoiesis
particularly in the mass itself. The proliferative megakaryocytes were quite atypical,
and in areas they mimicked the neoplastic process. There was evidence of compression of
normal parenchyma by the hamartomatous masses both grossly and microscopically.
It seems true that the histological features of splenic hamartoma can vary from case to case
and that one should pay particular attention to these lesions so that they are not misinterpreted
as true neoplastic processes.
